Things have been a blur since I last posted. I took Woosang to her follow up appointment after her surgery, drove to check out if the pharmacy could help her with the itching and headed back to Picton. On the way back I got a phone call about a job I had applied for and was invited to an interview on Thursday! WHOOOHOO!! I left Woosang’s place 5 days ago on the 12th. I left Picton sometime around lunchtime to head back home to Maitland. I knew Druey was sick and not feeling the best so I was keen to get home, plus I was missing the dogs. Given the phone calls I was getting while in Picton I expected to come home to a mess but was pleasantly surprised, but this proves I am the mess maker in this house! After I got home I relaxed and caught up with Druey and that was about it.

Wednesday was spent trying to get back into the rhythm of being at home, catching up on housework and preparing for a job interview the next day. Got a haircut, had a shave and made myself look presentable. Was stressing a little bit but managed to keep myself calm, until I went to look for my birth certificate. I checked the usual place and panic set in! It wasn’t there!!! What the actual fuck?! The last place I had needed it was with the company I was interviewing with the next day! I had a quick chat with Woosang and she said I should probably email them and explain the situation. Didn’t have to, the company sent me an email confirming my appointment so I wrote back and told them my problem and they said not to worry come anyway. It’s at this point I want you to make a mental note of what I just said because shit’s about to go totally mind fuck!

Thursday come and I got up early got myself organised and dressed, I was looking good! I got Druey off to work and got myself to the train station in time to head over to Hamilton for the interview. 20 minute train ride got me into town 30 minutes early but by the time I walked up to the offices I was only 20 minutes early. I walked in and put my game face on, I was ready to take on the world. Got to the front counter explained who I was and why I was there to the receptionist. She turned to me and put on the biggest forced looking smile and said ” I am really sorry to have to tell you this but we sent you an interview invitation by mistake.” Uhm WHAT?! I felt the blood boil from my toes right up to the top of my head. I calmly told her that I had gotten a verbal invitation, an email invitation and a confirmation email last night. She said she was sorry but that I had been sent the invitation by mistake. I left upset and angry, it took all my strength not to burst into tears but I managed to get home. I don’t really remember how I got home all I remember is I did.
I walked inside and set about cleaning my house. It’s my coping mechanism, I clean under beds and moved furniture to clean under it. After about an hour I got a call from my friend Rowan saying he had broken down and asked if I wasn’t busty could I pick him up. That was no problem but I was almost out of fuel. Rowan said he would get me some petrol when I got him so that was fine. I rang Druey and told him What I was doing and he asked me to drop off some Neurofen to him. I was a little concerned I wouldn’t make it to him and back to Rowan then to the petrol station on what fuel I had left but I did. I don’t remember much about the rest of the night was in a state of disbelief that a company could operate like that!

Saturday Druey and I decided to head out for a drive, I thought we had nowhere planned to go. I should have known better :p. We drove for 2+hours listening to our favorite podcast Hyper Nonsense. We ended up in a small country town called Merriwa. Druey promptly informed me that he had planned to come here all along for the amazing pies the bakery has.
Some of you probably aren’t aware that I have a gluten intolerance, it’s more of an annoyance to be honest. I can handle certain amount of gluten but it does make me a little sick. I decided to have a pie anyway, I haven’t had one in so long and I knew that I could handle having the pastry with only minor repercussions so I had a steak and mushroom pie then noticed the vanilla slice looking oh so amazingly delicious! I ate the pie and slice and only suffered bloating so was pretty impressed!
(I wrote a lot more but for some reason it’s all gone 🙁 Look for more tomorrow )
